1 May 1994 Advantages of pulse counting in microchannel plate detectors
Author Affiliations +
The output signal from a multichannel plate detector (MCP) can be processed by one of two methods: pulse counting or charge accumulation. For a two-stage MCP, the output signal-to- noise ratio is nearly twice as great for pulse counting. This represents a significant advantage in low count-rate applications, such as e-beam metrology of non-conducting specimens.
